Floundering Chiefs Look To Move On

Kaizer Chiefs’ 2018/19 Absa Premiership season saw them finish with their worst points tally in nearly three decades, and Ernst Middendorp has described it as a ‘disaster’.
 
 
The Glamour Boys’ final day defeat at the hands of Chippa United saw them finish outside of the top eight for the first time since 2006/07, and their haul of just 39 points is the lowest they’ve achieved in a season since way back in 1985.
 
Now, as they lick their wounds and try to prepare for this week’s Nedbank Cup final – and their last chance to end on a high – their coach says it just wasn’t to be in Port Elizabeth as they went down 1-0 to the Chilli Boys.
 
He told the club’s official website, “We could have played for another two hours and still not scored… We started very well and you could see our intentions from the first whistle. You can point at several factors that changed the game and looking back to say we should have done much better.
 
 
“We have to regroup quickly and find the right atmosphere going into the next match. It is no use at this stage to dwell on what happened. It goes without saying that we didn’t qualify for the top eight and that’s a disaster for a club of Chiefs’ magnitude and expectations. It’s a huge disappointment.”
 
Chiefs face TS Galaxy in Durban on Saturday afternoon.
